is extra tricky. this sounds a little confusing, but imagine this, the foreign policy of libertarian minded conservative republicans like rand paul has more in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be part of cuts and who wants to be less interventionist. remember, libertarians want to bring the troops home just as much as many liberals used to when george w. bush was president. so it's complicated for rand paul. he says he's fighting hagel on these principle grounds as it relates to benghazi, as it relates to the disclosure of documents and other things. but if libertarians had their way, they would prefer him to the guy who was just in there, leon panetta. >> rand paul is an intriguing character, if for no other reason than he always maintainses a very, very calm demeanor, but fires some heavy broadsides at the same time, one of which he fired at secretary of state hillary

foreign policy. hagel said i never said and i do i want believe it we'll see. to graham is that enough. he said let's make sure it is true. if it turned out it is not true and he could be in serious trouble and they want more information. if i had to beat, i beat more chance than not he will get through. but in the panel, we talked to bob woodword and he said some democratics are uneasy with the hagel nomination and in this week, he compared to water gate twist negligent wind that maybe democratics may go to the white house and pressure them to drop hagel, we'll see. >> there are two tracts, objection toz hagel himself and record in the past and using it as leverage to git more've - get more information about bengazi. you think bengazi is it answered it would help approximate hagel to sail through or the delay in time will bring up more time to dig up more things about him? >> state your namely some people who oppose hagel and try to dig up more information on him. failing that even if they don't get the answers in bengazi, a lot of senators and republicans are uneasy of blockin

get him confirmed. we get him to work and then republicans need to get serious about foreign policy again because you can't block someone's nomination because he bucked the line about the iraq war. now, we are at a place where we are filibustering. >> there are serious considerations that the senate put before this nominee. he was wrong on the sanctions in iran. he was wrong on the surge in 2007. the surge was exactly what was needed in iraq. she wrong on nuclear proliferation. the fact of the matter is in a perfect world, would it be great if there were no nuclear weapons but so far, nuclear weaponry is deterrent necessary to have more peaceful world. and we have proliferation that must be stopped. when we talk about foreign policy, it's a direct impact on the department of defense and these are exact questions we should be asking. >> heather: and this is not unprecedented. there are two other times that a cabinet secretary needed 60 votes and both of those bush nominees facing harry reid and democrats and environmental agency head. both had to meet 60 vote threshold. now it has happened

sanctions, saying that the policy is containment when it's not, it's prevention. in rutgers, he apparently had a statement that claimed he accused the state department of doing the ordering and the bidding of the israeli foreign ministry. because you have this delay, could more come out? could this snowball within the next week and a half that he could be pulled? >> well, i don't know about you, eric, but i rarely seen a cabinet secretary, cabinet appointee under the microscope the way this guy has. and i hope you'll pardon me, but short of finding out that he had improper relations with somebody under the age of 16 or so, i think everybody knows what's out there. people have made up their minds. you saw it in the votes. and i do think he will be confirmed. it's just, i don't know. i understand john mccain making a point. he also said that chuck hagel was friend of his and i thought, boy, with friends like that. but i think if you're outside of washington, you have to say, what are these guys and girls doing? we're going to have an acting secretary of defense. we've got a forego
